Meet Absolute Roofing: Cam Vacek
Meet Absolute Roofing
Over the next several weeks we will be doing a series profiling the different team members at Absolute Roofing. You’ll get to know us a little bit better and see us as so much more than roofing contractors.
What is your role?
Client Experience Coordinator
What do you do at Absolute Roofing?
In other companies, the work I do would be considered “marketing” but I think client experience is the full breadth of my role. I manage our website, social, and overall online presence, however, I also manage our offline presence. It’s important that our message of integrity and craftsmanship is not just something for show, but values that we live by.
How did you get involved with Absolute Roofing?
It’s a funny story, actually. We were first clients of Absolute Roofing and saw firsthand the experience of working with them long before I started working here.
In the summer of 2016 our original roof (15 years old at this point) needed to be re-roofed and we tried getting insurance to do it after a recent storm but they didn’t approve of it. Fine, whatever, we’ll wait it out.
Come January 2017 there was “Icepocalypse” and caused leaking in through our roof. We researched several Omaha roofing contractors and landed on Absolute through referrals. Paul immediately showed up to assess the situation. It’s REALLY hard to roof a house in the middle of winter, but Omaha had two days where the weather was above 40 degrees and they coordinated their crew to roof our house in those 2 days. (It was a small window, however, Paul made it happen!)
Paul recommended their 30-year roof- same stuff that is used on roofs in Alaska. We lived in that home for another 1.5 years before moving and in that time had no issues. Plus, they combed our yard twice for nails after they were finished. We never found a nail in the remaining time that we lived there.
We kept in contact with Absolute Roofing and they knew I had done marketing work in my past. They called me realizing they had a role they needed to fulfill in the office and in a short amount of time I was offered the position.
What’s your favorite thing about your job?
This job feels more like a family than work. Everyone trust each other here to get the work done and we really look out for each other. There’s an incredible amount of flexibility. As mentioned by the others, Paul and Keith really do care about us and our well being. There’s no other Omaha roofing company I’d rather work for!
Tell us about your family:
My husband and I recently celebrated our 9 year anniversary. We have 3 girls from ages 8-2 and love being a part of the Omaha community.
What is your favorite food?
This is a difficult question to answer as I love so many. Some of my favorites include pad thai, sushi, hamburgers, and of course, pizza.
What is your favorite Movie or TV Show?
There are so many good movies to pick one, but I do love me some Jeopardy.
What is your favorite place that you’ve been to and why?
It’s really hard to beat California. The beautiful natural landscapes and the diversity are some of my favorite parts about it.
What’s something about Absolute Roofing that most people don’t know?
In my short time here, I’ve been incredibly impressed with the amount of roofing knowledge by the team. From the insurance process, inspection process, or recommending different products. Our team of Omaha roofers are seriously so knowledgeable about roofing that I can confidently say I work for one of the best Omaha roofing companies.
